Let’s write secure Drupal code!

Prerequisites

Attendees need Drupal coding knowledge and some basic skills about secure coding, but all site builders and hardcore coders are welcome to learn something new about writing secure Drupal code!

Session details

In this session, I'll show the most common vulnerabilities that our Drupal code can have and how we should be prepared to avoid such an insecure code to be released. The presentation covers trends in vulnerabilities, starting in general aspects then showing Drupal specific ones. I'll also speak about what we should do if we find any vulnerabilities in contributed solutions.

All backgrounds are welcome from Drupal site builders to contributed projects' maintainers! Every one of you will be able to learn and improve your security awareness as being an active participant in the session.

Be ready for some showcases where we'll check Drupal 7 and 8 codes that are vulnerable and will fix them in live!

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
